"Intense, eclectic solo artist with influences mixing Pixies, early Radiohead, Prince and all things 1984."
Orange County Music Award Nominee Joe Nacco began his career 10 years ago with the indie-classic alt rock band HEAD. 6 solo albums later the two-homed Nacco remains Upstate NY’s top recording artist and one of Huntington Beach’s finest. Nacco has performed across the United States from L.A. to N.Y.C. playing with acts such as G. Love and Special Sauce and Rahzell. Nacco has won several Songwriting Awards and charted several times on Indie stations throughout the U.S. and Australia. Nacco has held several number one spots on Internet Radio.
After a two-year hiatus, 2008 brings the simultaneous release of two new albums This is California (a powerful and emotional indie-rock album recorded in Huntington Beach, CA with Nacco on ALL instruments) and No One Likes a Ballad (the quirky over-the-top 80’s tinged rock and new-wave album recorded in Upstate NY).
This is California features the new smash-hit "Who You Once Were" as well as "Done Gone Crazy," "For You" & "Catch You."
No One Likes a Ballad features "Faker," "Crazy Scientologist," "Drive Me Crazy," & "O Baby!" "Faker" from No One Likes a Ballad is being featured in the Sundance Film Festival documentary Spitting Game: The College Hook Up.
"This is the best album since the last one."
"After Requiem, I just wanted to do something crazy! So I just started recording all sorts of random sh*t and couldn’t stop. Finally I ran out of space on my hard drive! I either had to release this thing or start taking songs off my iPod!!"
"Bigger, louder, bolder and more eccentric than ever!"
"What is he, f&*$ing nuts?!?!"
"Joe obviously has talent and a good country/pop/rock sound."
- David Brice, Radio Network, New Zealand

- Meghan Reilly, Impose Magazine
"He has a Beatlesque songwriting style that is all his own, combined with a distinctive voice that is instantly recognized."
